Sheffield-Sheffield Lake City Schools
School Social Worker
The role of the school social worker is to assist families in having their son/daughter be the best possible student and have the most academic success. Situations such as academic struggles, emotional concerns, or behavioral issues can cause undue stress on students and their families. Social workers work with families to resolve social, emotional, and behavioral problems. We do this through assessment, consultation with school staff and community providers, through development and implementation of behavior management plans, and providing indirect and direct services.
School social workers help to bridge school, home, and community to help students be as successful as possible.
The school social worker is a team player with the family to be a resource for families who have questions, concerns, or want more information on programs and organizations that can help their child be a stronger student.
School social workers also have a network of counseling, parenting, and home resources that can help families positively strengthen the relationship they have with their children.
